Me & Will (1998) from Tuna

Me & Will (1998) is an Indie written, produced, directed and staring Sherrie Rose and Melissa Behr, and is a semi-autographical tribute to Easy Rider. They were offered funding by Roger Corman on the condition that they have a lesbian sex scene, and they turned him down flat. They do, however, have a lengthy nude scene together where they are splashing and cavorting in a hot spring, including full frontal exposure. 
The two meet in rehab, and decide to escape and go on a cross-country odyssey to find the red white and blue bike from Easy Rider. They pledge to remain drug free and avoid men - a pledge that proves to hard to keep.

DVD info from Amazon.

  • no widescreen, no features 

There is very little original here, and the photography in places is over-artistic and very distracting. The character development and acting is very good, however. 

I have to applaud the film makers for a strong effort against heavy odds, and producing an acceptable film.. 

The Critics Vote

  • Apollo 62

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 5.5/10, Apollo users 69/100. 
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a C.
